From the first album (Santana), the 2nd album (Abraxas) and all the way to the Ultimate Santana, with everything in between. Abraxas is beyond a tribute band, they are an awesome musical and spiritual experience as over a million people can testify.
The musicians in Abraxas immerse themselves in the awesome task of replicating Santana's music. We do this with stunning accuracy, spirit and soul. The members of Abraxas have recorded and toured with many different world class acts, and it shows when they perform their tribute to Santana.

No other Santana tribute band plays them as authentically as does Abraxas.
